My Week in Photos

It’s only Friday but I thought I’d give you an update on my week so far. In fact I thought I’d give you my week in photos!!
My beautiful lillies started opening up! They smell amazing.

It's been SUPER hot this week so on Jeff's day off we escaped to the aircon of the Plaza with Kevin. This is a picture of the BIG rain clouds that appeared!

And down came the rain. Praise the Lord! We really really needed it.

I don't think I've ever been quite so happy to see rain! Jeff, Kevin and I praised the Lord all the way out of the Plaza haha!

Jeff bought himself a brand new, comfy desk chair that we had to fit in the Polo somehow!

The Lodge got a bit flooded in from the rain!

And flooding over the road!

Puss has been a little bit naughty this week. Running outside the second a door is opened, getting on the roof 4 times (once at night) and ALMOST catching one of our pretty birds. Naughty Girl!!!

I had my first relief day for the year on Thursday. I taught Year 4/5 for 3hrs. They were little angels! Was a great day back.

Our power has gone out 3 times this week. Once was during dinner time for an hour on Thursday night so we ate by candle light and sat around talking til it came back on.

Today (Friday) Mum and I are going down to Brisbane to look around the shops and at night are going to a concert at QPAC. We're also catching up with my friend Ash and her mum for dinner... and maybe Jeff.

Saturday Jeff has the day off work so we'll probably hang out and maybe find out some information about our honeymoon. Prices, locations, deals etc.

Sunday is always totally dedicated to church. We very rarely have the day to ourselves, even after church. We have normal service at 10am, followed by morning tea, lodge service at 1pm and afternoon tea at the lodge.

I believe things are just going to get busier and busier from now on! Work, wedding planning, honeymoon planning, collect things for our house, saving for our house, buying a house/building a house. Exciting times are ahead!!!

Valentine’s Day – the day of love

I wanted to start this post off by reminding you that whilst Valentine’s Day is fun and a great day to spoil the one you love, you can make everyday Valentine’s Day... not just the 14th February each year. I also wanted to point out that whether you are single, married, with someone or engaged, you’re Father in heaven loves you more than any human can. So let’s not forget His incredible love for us and what He scarified for us!
Jeffrey’s and my Valentine’s Day started a little earlier then the 14th because we knew we’d be busy with church and Jeff has to mind the lodge at the moment. Friday afternoon a beautiful bunch of pink lilies, chocolates and a lovely card arrived at my house. I felt so spoilt and the flowers are just now opening and filling the house with their amazing perfume. When Jeff got back from work I gave him his presents, a set of silver cufflinks with a Swarovski crystals and his name and our wedding date engraved on them. They are for him to wear with his suit on our wedding day! He was very pleased and surprised!

Today (Sunday – Valentine’s Day) Jeff and I went to church to celebrate the love that our Lord has for us no matter what. After church we went up to Montville for coffee. This was probably the only negative thing about our day. We went to a lovely cafe with an amazing view but because we just wanted a coffee we were asked to move from the table we sat at and sit up the back... away from the view. We found it really quite rude, like we were simply a dollar sign to this place and not valued customers. I’ve never come across a place like this before and unfortunately will not be recommending it to others.

After that we headed into town to wander around the shops and have a Boost Juice! I even bought a beautiful pair of earrings to wear with the ‘going away dress’ that my Nana is making me. They are so cute!!!

Overall we had a lovely Valentine’s Day together and finished off the day by watching two movies from the ‘Love Comes Softly’ series!

My week in February!

I haven’t updated this blog in over a month now... how slack! That’s because I have two other blogs to update as well.


Our Wedding Journal - http://jcweddingjournal.blogspot.com/

Palmwoods Baptist Church - http://palmwoodsbaptistchurch.blogspot.com/

Feel free to share either of these with your friends or anyone who might be interested! Also please comment if you enjoy a post. Blogging can be a pretty boring task if you don’t think anyone is reading. It’s very encouraging whenever you get comments from readers!

Because it’s getting pretty late and I have to be up early in the morning, I thought I’d give you an update on my week in pictures! Enjoy

We saw Kevin preach his first message at Church

I captured some pictures of the gorgeous birds on our feeder!
